Meet A Beekeeper @ Prospect Park Zoo

October 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm


Say hello to The Bee Conservancy’s staff beekeepers at Prospect Park Zoo!

Have you ever seen the magic that goes on inside a beehive? Hear about it all firsthand from a beekeeper and learn how they safely work with their hives, what tools they use, how to identify different kinds of bees, and why these precious pollinators are vital for the environment.

Meet A Beekeeper will start at 12pm by the zoo’s hives on Discovery Trail, across from the Dingos.

For more information about getting to the zoo and tickets, please see Prospect Park Zoo, Know Before You Go.
